Bianchi Rekord - Restoration
In the summer of this year, one of our customers bought a Bianchi Rekord 745 as a restoration project. They then sent us some amazing photogrpahs and the bike went on to compete in the L'Eroica Britannia "Best In Show" competition.
You can read all about the project and find out how Kim got on with her project.
Retrospective Cycles - The Book
Coming late spring 2014, the second in our series of photographic explorations of vintage Italian cycles and scooters.
Following the success of our first book, Retrospective Scooters (first published last year, sold out but a re-print coming soon), we have turned our attention to the wonderful vintage Italian racing cycles that we see during our everyday business during trips across Europe.
If you would like to reserve your copy (there will only be an initial run of 200 produced so these will be rare from day one), visit our photography partner Vespamore where you can find out more and order a copy.
"RETROSPECTIVE CYCLES (The Book)" brings together classic Italian racing bicycles and analogue photography. A collaboration between Retrospective Cycles, the UK's premier importer of classic bikes and photographer Paul Hart - combining their passions for vintage cycling and film photography.
The book begins with an introduction to Retrospective Cycles, followed by images taken between November 2010 and February 2014 at their North London premises and elsewhere around the city. What comes next is an evocative series of shots captured during their visit to 2013's L'Eroica, the esteemed Italian event for classic cycling, completing this visual feast for vintage cycling enthusiasts."
